INSTANT LEMON COOKIES

This recipe came from my oldest daughter's Kindergarten teacher in 1983. This recipe is a staple in our house and ALWAYS is included on our Christmas Cookie trays! I have tried different combinations through the years and our favorites are:
German Choc Cake mix with German Choc frosting.

Spice Cake Mix with Cream Cheese Frosting (add a little orange peel)

Buttered Pecan Cake Mix with Buttercream Frosting, decorate with ground pecans.

It's important to decorate immediately because the canned frosting gets a hardened glaze on it once it's exposed to air and the sprinkles will run off more than they will stay on the cookie!

Also, my own personal preference for baking cookies is to bake them on an AIRBAKE cookie sheet.
